Free/cheap SPICE?

  1. Dec 5, 2013 #1
    Anyone using a free/cheap SPICE that they like?
    I keep finding myself handicapped by not having access to one, but I would rather not have to trial-and-error a bunch of them in order to find a decent one.
    I used batch-style SPICE back in the day, so I can do that if necessary, and post-process the results. Probably easier now that spreadsheets and whatnot are common.

    I thought we had several older threads about this, but only found this one with a search:

    Are you a student?

    LTSpice is free and work very good.



    Here you can find all the additional models
    http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/LTspice/
    and here
    http://valvolodin.narod.ru/soft/extra.rar
    Unpack the archive "extra.rar", using the archive RAR
    Copy "extra1.rar" which is installed in the directories are LTspiceIV. Typically, this directory is "C: \ Program Files \ LTC"
    Unzip "extra1.rar" which is installed in the directories are LTspiceIV
    Finish
